Alaska king salmon are a prized catch among anglers and the Little Susitna River in the Mat-Su Valley is our destination to try to catch one. We are taking a fishing charter that conveniently starts from the Little Susitna Public Use Area [also known as Burma Landing] where there is a boat launch with a nice little campground for our motorhome.
Unfortunately, king salmon numbers are not as strong as they once were, making the prize even greater. I have always wanted to return to the Little Susitna River, back in 2007 I guided anglers there to catching their own king salmon. Did you know that I have never reeled in a king salmon myself? It may sound ironic, especially since I was an Alaska fishing guide for years. Surprisingly, there are many captains and guides that never get to go fishing on their own.
